Entertainment Weekly: Can you tell me a little bit about the design that went into Leia, both the figure and her as a playable character (her gameplay type, going with specific costume choices, etc.)

Jeff Bunker: First off, I’ll just say it was amazing and surreal getting to work on Star Wars, in general, and Leia, specifically. Most of development team at Avalanche grew up on the original Star War Episodes IV-VI and would never have dreamed it possible that some day we would get to work with those characters. 

Disney Infinity 3.0 will be released later during this year for the PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, iOS, and Android devices.
